Today, Larry Hryb, Director of Programming for Xbox Live, announced that Xbox 360 games Silent Hill HD Collection and Silent Hill: Homecoming are now backward compatible on Xbox One. Both games aren't the heavy-hitters fans were hoping for, but they're still a lot of fun.
Backward compatibility opens Xbox One to a huge variety of games, spanning three generations of Microsoft's consoles. Despite hardware differences, it remains an outstanding feature, allowing a select library of older games to be played on Xbox One. While the majority of them are Xbox 360 titles, there are also some original Xbox games in there.
Silent Hill HD Collection
Silent Hill HD Collection is a compilation of remastered ports of Silent Hill 2 and Silent Hill 3 released for the Xbox 360. Both of the games are regarded as some of the better entries in the Silent Hill franchise.
Silent Hill: Homecoming
Silent Hill: Homecoming is a survival horror game and the sixth installment in the Silent Hill series. The title follows Alex Shepherd, a soldier returning from war, as he finds his town in disarray, and his younger brother missing. As Alex continues to search for his brother, he uncovers a strange cult and the region's dark past.
Be sure to check out these games on Xbox One if you're looking for a break between new experiences like The Crew 2. Even to this day Silent Hill HD Collection and Silent Hill: Homecoming remain quite enjoyable.
